[DVD Review] Wrestling Then and Now- The Movie was a fantastic documentary and the first of its kind coming from and focusing on the granddaddy of nostalgic monthly publications. Evan Ginzburg has worked hard for well over twenty years, involving all the many colorful characters from pro wrestling as well as the arts like jazz, new world beat, and most forms of music. Killer Kowalski and the late Tiger Khan and so many have been a part of WT&Now and are now further immortalized on film. It’s a wonderful piece of history and art and I can’t wait to re-watch it all over again! – Reviewed by Mike Lano (radio host and wrestling writer/photographer/historian from 1966 to current) – Visit www.walkertown.com and www.wrestlingthenandnow.com for more details!
